Going to paint these wheels.


My dad owns a powder coating shop so it will be most convenient to get them painted there. However, it will only be one color. I'm thinking a silver color, since he has a nice lot of silvers to choose from. What do you guys think?

If it was mine car I would stay with just what you have but silver will probably be kool too. I'm just waiting to get my engine bay repainted soon and since my tires are just like your, I'm going with Cragar wheels. That is if I have any money left after the engine is pulled and it's all done right this year. I see you are fairly new on here so enjoy your ride and if you know of any Car Shows in your area, let me know This is my e-mail [email protected] Michael in Virginia (South Boston):smileyb:

X2 on leaving the same color. In silver, you'll lose the way the trim "pops".

Those rims look good. Maybe a gloss black and leave the silver alone, Just my thoughts :texas:

leave them the way they are or the darker color of your two tone.

Thanks for the input guys. I'll take your advice and keep them the same. It does indeed look nice. However, when I get new tires in a few months, I'll just put my car on the jack and probably powder coat the wheel the same color and then have my friend liquid spray the beauty ring to the same trim color.:beer:
